Whitetail deer are a medium sized deer native to the United States. One feature that has ensured the species survival is that they can adapt to just about any kind of terrain, or food source. Some species do well in forest, or grasslands – but not both. Whitetail deer can adapt to woodlands, grassy plains and even newly developed neighborhoods.
One of the primary food sources for whitetail deer are acorns from oak trees. But they can graze on grass, twigs, and all kinds of foliage.
Even though bucks are usually considered males and does are considered females. Sometimes a female deer will grow antlers. When a female deer does grow antlers, they are considered hemorphidites. Because of hemorphidite deer, most regions issue hunting licenses with either “Antler” or “Anterless” stamped on them – instead of “Buck” or “Doe”.
